    Category: Rude & Risque

    For those who like their humor a bit more PG-13, this section is littered with customers who are not afraid to walk on the more brazen side, or act downright gross-out disgusting. Be warned though that toilet humor sometimes literally takes place in the toilet.

    Requires Protection From Customers

    | Watseka, IL, USA | Language & Words, Rude & Risque, Theme Of The Month

    (The store has just opened, and the first customer in the store is a very elderly gentleman in an electric wheelchair. He approaches me in the hardware department.)

    Me: “Good morning, sir. Can I help you find anything?”

    Customer: *after long pause* “… I need screws.”

    Me: “Okay, the screws are right here behind me. What size do you need?”

    Customer: *points* “Hand me that box.”

    (I hand him the box, and he opens it and removes one screw.)

    Customer: “Now… I need protection for my screw. Where would I get that?”

    Me: “Well, the nuts and washers are all right here.”

    Customer: “No…” *doing air quotes with his fingers* “‘PROTECTION,’ for my ‘SCREWS.’”

    Me: “I don’t follow you, sir…”

    Customer: *talking under his breath* “… rubbers.”

    Me: “Rubbers?”

    Customer: *yelling* “CONDOMS, OK?! I NEED CONDOMS!”

    Me: “Sir, this is a farm supply store… We don’t sell those.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay.” *hands me back the screws* “Put these back, I don’t need them.”

    It’s Not Cute

    | Aurora, CO, USA | At The Checkout, Food & Drink, Rude & Risque, Theme Of The Month

    (At my store we sell a brand of clementines known as ‘Cuties.’. Sadly, this is kind of a common occurrence.)

    Me: “Sir, would you like your cuties in the box or in a bag?”

    Customer: *takes them out of the box and hands it to me* “This is for you, because you’re such a cutie.” *winks*

    Me: “Um… thanks…” *smiles awkwardly and finishes the transaction* “All right, sir, your total is [amount]. Would you like any help out to your car tonight?”

    Customer: “Will you be the one helping me out?”

    Me: “No, that would be him.” *points to the male courtesy clerk*

    Customer: *face falls* “Then, no.”

    Always Been A Leg Man

    | Singapore | Language & Words, Rude & Risque

    Customer: “So this table leg, can it fit onto this table?”

    Me: “Yes, sir.”

    Customer: “And is it easy to fix it?”

    Me: “Yup.”

    Customer: “We just have to screw it ourselves yeah?”

    Me: “Yes, just screw yourselves.” *suppressed laughter*

    Just Paper Cut Right To It

    | FL, USA | Crazy Requests, Money, Rude & Risque

    (I answer the phone at work.)

    Customer: “Hi. My name is [Name] and I am with [Gentlemen's Club].  I am going to need to order some change.”

    Me: “Okay. What will you need?”

    Customer: “I need $1,400 in old ones.”

    Me: “I believe I have $1,400 in ones, but I am not sure if they are all old.”

    Customer: “Oh, I have to have old ‘ones’ because the new ones give the strippers paper cuts.”

    A Freudian Slip And Slide

    | Rochester, MN, USA | Funny Names, Rude & Risque

    (I am helping a customer with some plumbing fittings for his old-home cast-iron pipes.)

    Customer: “I don’t think this gasket is going to slide into the pipe.”

    Me: “It should slide right in for you.”

    Customer: “Well, if it don’t slide in, what can I use to help slide it in?”

    Me: “You can use some KY jelly, and that will help.”

    Customer: “Oh, yeah. We got some of that and should work just fine then.”

    Me: “Yep, should work.”

    (The customer’s wife comes around as we get other fittings together, and he looks at his wife.)

    Customer: “Almost done here. Got all the stuff I need, and I just need to find where the KY jelly is.”

    (The wife’s eyes gets big in disbelief. I initially think ‘what’s wrong with her?’)

    Wife: “Umm. What?”

    Customer: “The KY jelly to help slide the fittings into… oh… c**p.”

    (The customer looks at me, and just as he does so, it dawns on me what we have both just said!)

    Me: “Oh… We need to find the silicone jelly! Sorry! I have no ideal how I came up with KY jelly!”
